Theatrical trailer for the 1953 film "The Band Wagon", which got positive reviews but was only a modest box office hit. It starred Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant, Nanette Fabray, and Jack Buchanan. Interestingly, the characters of Lester and Lily Marton were patterned after the screenwriters (Betty Comden and Adolph Green), though they weren't romantically involved in real life.

Help us get more films like this online! This film was digitized and uploaded thanks to contributions from this project: www.indiegogo.com/avgeeks100miles Points out that the bicycle rider is responsible for maintaining the bicycle in good condition, obeying traffic rules and watching out for others. The film also reads like a laundry list of hazardous things to attempt on your bicycle! Those familiar with Lawrence, Kansas (Centron's home) may recognize some landmarks.
